Well I have had my Epson 6500UB for two years and two months and yesterday appeared a magenta band on the bottom of the screen. I called Epson and since it is two months out of warranty they just referred me to a 3rd party service center. The service center told me it could be an alignment issue which would cost about $350 or if it is the optical engine it's closer to $1800 which is the cost of a new projector. Any ideas on how serious this issue is? I have searched and have seen that it is a common problem but it was a while ago and those people were covered under warranty and received refurbished units. This is sad seeing as the projector has only about 1500 hours on it total. I will definitely be buying the extended warranty next time! Thanks for any advice.
